p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D800 sensor cleaning


Looks like I have a couple of pesky spots in the extreme upper right side of my sensor.

Has anyone cleaned their D800 yet.... Any words of wisdom. My only sensor cleaning experience has been with the Eclipse fluid and sensor swipes. This will be the first time for my D800... And the last time I cleaned a camera was a good long time ago. I should probably do my D7000 too.

I have cleaned mine more than a dozen times now since I have both versions.

I just roll one piece of the wipes on the tip of the tweezers to make a soft paper tip. Drop two or three drops of cleaning fluid on the tip. Now do the cleaning.

All due respect, but metal tweezers to clean a sensor? Wow

Seeing your pointy tweezer pic and thinking of the d800 sensor (which, according to Roger Cicala, costs around 1700us$ to replace) just gave me the chills..

I use visible dust products to clean sensors.
The first time on my D800E I messed up, I had some oil specs on the sensor (no idea were they came from).
The result as a nice colourful pattern on the sensor and I had to go to the repair centre (20min drive) where they cleaned it at no charge.
Last month I did it myself again with no problems.

BTW at the repair centre they use the same method as described by Michael/mshi (they use flat tweezers though).

You're are cleaning the lowpass filter and what's under that makes no difference.

But it's one whole part.
